Burlesque-A-Pades Holiday Spectacular (slide show)

Angie Pontani and her burlesque buddies wow the crowd at the annual Burlesque-A-Pades Holiday Spectacular.

It was a night of sequins and sleigh bells (or was that ringing in our ears simply a side effect of glittering-sequin overload?) at this year’s edition of Burlesque-A-Pades Holiday Spectacular, held at Le Poisson Rouge on Saturday, Sat 21. Starring burlesque superstar Angie Pontani, her tap-dancing sibling Helen, fellow burly-Q beauties the Maine Attraction and Tansy, and sideshow stalwart Albert Cadabra, the night offered up plenty of laughs and festive flesh—and if that won’t get you into the holiday spirit, we’re not sure what will.
